Nick Cordero’s wife Amanda Kloots gave a detailed look at the Broadway star’s emotional battle with the coronavirus.

On Friday, Kloots shared a photo of the couple holding their baby on Instagram in what she described as their “last family photo before Nick got sick.”

Kloots said that Cordero, 41, was generally in good health and had no health problems. They don’t know how he got COVID-19, but he got sick in late March.

“He went to the emergency room on March 30 and was intubated on a ventilator on April 1,” wrote Kloots, recounting Cordero’s heartbreaking struggles: resuscitation after infection caused his heart to stop, two “mini beatings ”and an amputation of the leg.

She listed more treatments: “An MRI to investigate more about brain damage, several bronchial scans to cleanse her lungs, an infection (sepsis) causing septic shock, a fungus in her lungs, holes in her lungs, a tracheostomy , blood clots, blood cell depression and platelet count, and a temporary pacemaker to help his heart. ”

Kloots shared that Cordero spent almost 40 days in the ICU, and urged others to stay at home because the coronavirus can affect anyone, not just the “elderly.”

“This trip with Nick was the most difficult thing we have ever had to go through. I ask God for a miracle and my father reminded me that God answers my prayer every day because he is always with us! Kloots wrote. “Nick is a fighter and has not given up. “

She finished her job thanking health workers at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles.

Since Cordero’s hospitalization, Kloots has kept followers informed of her husband’s health journey.

In an emotional update to her Instagram stories on Wednesday, Kloots said that she had received a call from Cordero’s doctor, who said her husband was showing “early” signs of awakening.

“The doctor just called and said Nick was showing very, very, very, very early, early, the early stages of follow-up, which means he was starting to wake up, which is huge,” said Kloots in tears. “Early, early, first signs, but deep down, he opened his eyes, but nothing is behind and now he’s slowly starting to show signs. “
